I use Linode.com for a small mail and web server. They use User Mode Linux
to give you full root access to your own (virtual) Linux system. They

(including Debian).

The one thing to look out for is RAM. The $20/month plan only gives you
64M RAM, which may not be adequate if you're planning on running a
memory-hungry application. I had to get rid of mod_perl in Apache and
tweak MaxSpareServers downward to keep the system out of swap. After that,
though, it's been running just fine.
